  1. I grew up spending lots of time with Mr. & Mrs. Nufer. They were wonderful family friends. Jean always made us feel welcome in her house even though we were much younger than her children, she never tired of having us over.

  3. I had the privileged of doing Jean’s hair for a few years, what a truly wonderful lady. My husband and I had the opportunity after I retired to meet Jean and Bill in Wal-Mart occasionally and we were so impressed by the love the two of them shared. They were exemplary of what true love is! Our deepest sympathy. Now she can be with Bill again as well as our Savior.

  5. Bill and Jean Nufer – Best next door neighbors anyone could ask for. Coincidentally, I will be in Pueblo for a business event 9/10 in the afternoon and I will plan on being at the funeral that morning. Jean was a great woman and friend to all. Dan Chenoweth
